If you're finally ready for an exercise habit that will still be around in a year or 10, Daily Victory from WebMD will help you get there! Forming a great habit is a different skill than exercising or eating right, and that's why Daily Victory works.
If your employer or health plan offers Daily Victory as a benefit to you, you are minutes away from beginning a life-changing habit.
DAILY VICTORY MAKES YOUR HABIT STICK
Daily Victory sets you up for success by helping you make just one good choice each day!
1. Choose one thing - not two or three, just one.
2. Make progress every day, even if it's for five minutes.
3. Earn trophies as you record your progress.
4. Celebrate every victory!
When you focus on just one thing at a time, start small, and hold yourself accountable, you have a recipe for long-term success.
1. Daily Victory is integrated with other WebMD Health Services products.
2. Your progress will be automatically added to your online personal health and wellness portal.
3. You'll be up-to-date wherever you are.
If you download Daily Victory without having a qualified account, you won't be able to use it.
Many employers and health plans offer Daily Victory as part of the WebMD Health Services suite of health applications. If you don't know if you have access to Daily Victory, ask your benefits administrator.
What's New in Version 3.8.6
Warning - Don't rely on this for work tracking
My company requires us to log 90 days of exercise over 9 months or we have to pay an addition $1000 in insurance premiums. This app is the suggested way to record they exercise. It syncs with the WebMD site. WebMD the assigns a pass/fail and provides that to my employer. The app doesn't give any show how close I am to meeting the goal. Only shows number of days exercised over the past 7 days. We have to finish up by August 31 so today I double checked th eweb-site only to learn the app hasn't synced in over a month. Called WebMD and the solution was to uninstall and reinstall the app now losing all of the data on the phone!! There suggestion, "just go to the website and make some exercise dates up so you can get the credit." WORTHLESS!!!
Nothing about WebMD's system is designed with the user in mind. The Victory app requires a passcode from the WebMD site. There's your first catch. Which WebMD site? Go ahead and try searching. You'll come up with seemingly dozens of sites, each with their own passwords.
Once you're into the app, it doesn't get any better. There's no integration with any other health services. If you're using any other health app (including Apple's Health), be prepared to enter all your data twice.
Ah, entering data. Someone at WebMD thought it'd be better to have a custom scroll wheel to select a number rather than just popping up a number keyboard. Honestly, who knows. Maybe it would've been better…but they appear to have put no engineering resources behind it. It's non responsive and inexact. I found it impossible to enter 40 minutes—it jumped from 39 to 41 repeatedly.
Truth is, most of us using this have to in order to get our health premiums. If you're just looking for an app to track your workouts, go use literally any other app. There is no chance it could be worse than this one.
Does what's supposed to do
The object of this app is to get you to focus on one goal and complete that each day. It's not made to record all your workouts, it's for somebody needs encouragement to get started doing SOMETHING other than being a couch potato!
I had trouble figuring out the authentication key, but WebMD tech support walked me thru the steps. Once that was setup it was easy.
Great app to remind me to MOVE!
